Locked Hams needed for BikeMS event on October 1st-2nd

Lee Besing

Well with all the bad stuff going on in my life right now, I dropped the ball for recruiting volunteers for this event.

I urgently need more Ham operators to help me out for October 1st and 2nd.

It's for the Bike MS: Ride to the River 2022, a 2-day bicycling event.

I'm needing Ham operators to staff rest stops on Saturday and/or Sunday, but if you can only do one day that's fine.  The hours will vary, depending upon which location you're at. For example if you're at the turnaround on River road, you're going to be there till after 5:00 on Saturday. The route on Sunday is shorter than Saturday and the event will get over sooner.

I'm needing people to drive rented sag vans or pickup trucks. And I'm needing hams to act as navigators. Oftentimes this is the husband wife team or just a couple of friends getting together. The MS Society gives the SAG drivers a fuel card to use for the event, so there is no money out of your pocket. No more waiting for reimbursement after the fact. No funky gift cards that don't pay you enough, like the L'etape did to us last April.

They do perform a background check / driver's license check on the drivers of any vehicles that they rent.

If you have any questions, please contact me directly. Most of you already have my cell phone number, 210-771-7075. You can send me a direct message through Messenger, or just send me a text.  If you prefer email, please use info@...

There is a bike tour survival guide for hams posted on the front page of Sanantoniohams.org
